In this cutesy little video flashback from September 1985, Aaron Spelling stars are forced to promote their respective series' season premieres. Watch as "Captain Stubing" tries to get Joan Collins to reveal who died in Moldavia.
Gavin MacLeod who played Captain Merrill Stubing on "The Love Boat" (back in the days when network TV in the US used to air original scripted series on Saturday nights) appears to be in character, while Joan (though dressed as Alexis) is not.
When this promo aired, "Dynasty" was still considered not only ABC's but America's #1 television series - a position that would quickly change once the viewers did find out who survived the Moldavian carnage a few weeks later.
